Taylor Swift‘s new album will be about love, hurt, rejection and frustration. And how you feel all of those differently in every different relationship. She told MTV News that much , and added that “as you grow, you change in the way that you process emotion.”
Asked about what inspired her songwriting on her next album, Swift said, “Love is always gonna be a huge theme in what I write about, just because there are no two similar relationships. There are no two times that you feel love the same way. Or hurt the same way. Or rejection the same way. Or frustration. It’s all different, and I’m fascinated by that.”
While Swift wrote all the songs on her last album alone, this time around she’s writing with people she has always wanted to work with from all different places in music. “I’m 22 and I want to learn as much as I can, and constantly be around people who I feel like are amazing at what they do,” she said, even though she wouldn’t name any names.
